ARTIST IN VACANCY

mission

The Newburgh Community Land Bank (NCLB) believes we have a unique role in community revitalization. NCLB’s goal is to eliminate barriers to redevelopment that go beyond property renovation and sale alone. By opening NCLB properties as temporary platforms for creative interventions, we look to transform our liabilities into sites for engagement: safe, accessible spaces which draw the public experience inside the vacancy and bring life back to marginalized spaces of underserved neighborhoods in the city. 

NCLB’s Artist in Vacancy (AIV) is a creative initiative addressing vacancy & abandonment in Newburgh by re-imagining vacant sites as places for community engagement, artistic production, aesthetic & cultural research, and renewed inhabitation.
